we live in a culture that is subjected to the "over-awesomeness" of everything...awesome ceases to be awesome, now awesome simply means "arguably better than decent"

as far as the Alabama Shakes, her voice is interesting, I thought it was a guy at first, the guitar work is competent, their sound is basic and early 70s grass roots folk rock retro...

Same, I thought it was a guy singing till I looked them up ahead of the debut album, which I bought. A year later, I still like it and put it on sometimes. I first heard them on David Byrnes website, then on NPR streaming performances from South X Soutwest last year.
